When small, lightweight and barely visible microphones for top-quality recordings are required, the active cable design and clean, transparent sound of our ultra-compact d:dicate™ 4006E Omnidirectional Microphone makes them the perfect choice. The mic features an integrated cable solution with either side (4006ES) or rear (4006ER) cable entry.

These mics are particularly popular as A-B stereo or Decca Tree pairs in concert halls. This mic can be mounted, hung or concealed to create clean, transparent recordings. The SM4000 Suspension Mount is included in the package. This allows the mic to be hung from the ceiling to create precision spot-miking of orchestra sections or ambience atmosphere.

The d:dicate™ 4006E Omnidirectional Microphone is ideal in theatres, opera houses, concert halls or houses of worship and for film applications, both in the studio and on location. These mics are also popular for ambience miking on soundstages, in sports stadiums and other environments where ambient sound needs to be recorded.
 

The microphone capsule

The MMC4006 Omnidirectional Microphone Capsule offers total transparency in any recording situation. It picks up incredible detail and depth of sound. The definition of its high-frequency characteristics across a wide range of instruments is impressive. It offers natural sound, high sensitivity, low noise-floor and extremely linear frequency response from 10 to 20 kHz (±2 dB).

A selection of accessories is available, including acoustic pressure equalizers, a nose cone and interchangeable protection grids. These accessories can acoustically transform the mic. By changing grids, it is possible to gain several unique frequency responses and directional characteristics from the mic. Furthermore, these accessories will not produce any phase shift, noise or distortion that would otherwise be introduced by an electrical filter.
 

A truly flexible range

This mic is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphone Series. At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 4006E Omnidirectional Microphone into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.

The d:dicate™ 4006ES replaces the non-modular legacy 4051 Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone and the d:dicate™ 4006ER replaces the non-modular legacy 4052 Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone.

Order numbers: 4006ER, 4006ES.
